Why multi-asset strategies need real-time data systems

While low-cost index-tracking funds continue to experience exponential growth, multi-asset strategies also are giving investors unique opportunities to improve returns by beating the benchmark. In 2017, multi-asset funds recorded the greatest net inflows of any top-level strategy, delivered returns of more than 10 percent and grew their assets by 14 percent. 

But handling multi-asset portfolios can also create major operational complexities for asset managers and fund administrators – not least when it comes to data management. Today, 41 percent of managers and 29 percent of administrators do not believe they are effective at visualizing and simplifying complex data. 

In our webinar, learn the secrets of effectively managing and servicing multi-asset strategies. And discover how seamlessly integrated, real-time data systems, predictive analytics and machine-learning tools could help you both process funds efficiently and support in-depth portfolio analysis and risk management.
